I did not get a lot in the mail this week. Only two books! Agh. I am shocked, lol. But it is because of this easter thing. No mail for days. And no mail today either. Sniffs. So nothing until Tuesday. But hopefully things will start arriving then; as I am waiting for a bunch of books. :) But even though I got little in the mail, I have had a lot of new blog posts. I have read a lot as well. Which makes me happy. Going to share all the new posts, hih. First, my reviews for this week: Invaded. Prisoner of Night and Fog. Shipwreck Island. Reboot. And I'm currently writing my review of Rebel, which will post in a moment. <3 Cover reveals: Talon. The Cure for Dreaming. Everblaze. Cress Tuesday. My poor Scarlet. Sniffs. And my Waiting on Wednesday. So yeah. There were a lot of new posts this week :D What did you get this week?
Sea of Shadows. I will read this book soonish, I think :D And omg. I won a signed copy! Coming soon :)
The Mark of Athena. You all know of my love for Percy Jackson. <3 Best book. Gorgeous US paperback.
I was supposed to write about this last week. But I kept forgetting :p Just luck that I just remembered it, lol. Anyway. Last week I watched two movies at the cinema. First, Noah. Which I very much liked. I thought it was a great movie. Except that I didn't like Ham. The bible isn't anything for me, so I haven't read the "real" version of this story. Just know that I enjoyed this one. Cannot wait to watch it again.
Then I also watched Divergent the next day. And I'm not sure how to feel. It was a favorite book of mine for a long time; until I read better ones, lol. But yeah. I still love that book. But this movie. I'm not sure why, but it bored me. I sat there for over two hours being bored. And waiting for it to finish :p It was pretty good, though. It was probably the best book-to-movie adaption. But I also didn't love it. Because a lot of things were different from the book. The fear landscapes were different. Especially when Tris did her test at the end, with Four wanting to sleep with her. In the movie he tried to rape her and she kneed his balls. And seriously. IT WAS NOT LIKE THAT IN THE BOOK. It annoyed the crap out of me. Sigh. Anyway. There was just so much about that movie I did not like. I didn't feel much for it. I think I liked the actors. Though not that much. I wanted Tris to have blonde hair. Was it really THAT difficult to find a blond actor?! I think not. Ugh. And Four. He did not look like I pictured him. Sigh. He's handsome. Kind of. But not really for me. Sniffs. And Tris's friends. They all looked the same. Which confused me even more. (Will, Al, Peter) And omg! Just remembered. What pissed me off even more was how many initiates there were. Waaaaay above 30. Which was not in the book. Ugh. Sorry. I was just not very happy with this movie. Maybe a 2.5 star for me. Or just a 2 star. I can't be sure. Anyway. <3
